Egypt's Science and Technology Development Fund (STDF) in cooperation with the UK Royal Academy of Engineering organized a workshop on supporting innovative projects and promising ideas to raise awareness of scientific research.
The workshop falls within the framework of the Newton-Mosharafa Fund partnership, one of the major international cooperation projects supported by the STDF to finance research projects in various fields.
In a statement on Saturday, STDF executive chairman Emad Eddin Hegazy said that the workshop is aimed at achieving sustainable development through turning the output of the scientific research in Egypt into industrial application.
The move comes in line with the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research's plan, Hegazy added.
A number of innovations were presented during the workshop and researchers whose projects have been funded, produced and marketed were honored, he noted.
